The all-star cast of America: The Motion Picture has been revealed ahead of the animated film hitting Netflix in June. 

Channing Tatum leads the roster of stars voicing the animated movie based on the American Revolution as he takes on the role of George Washington. 

The buff, chainsaw wielding take on the first president of the United States is set to assemble a team to take on King James, played by Simon Pegg, and Benedict Arnold in the upcoming film. 

Washington is joined by a beer-swilling Sam Adams, scientist Thomas Edison, played by Olivia Munn, equestrian Paul Revere, played by Bobby Moynihan, and Geronimo, who will be voiced by Raoul Trujillo. 

Judy Greer will star as Martha Dandridge, and the rest of the cast includes Jason Mantzoukas, Will Forte, Andy Samberg and more, with roles yet to be confirmed. 

The film will be directed by Matt Thompson, who executive produced Archer, from a script by Dave Callaham. 

Channing is also listed as one of the producers of the animated movie along with Reid Carolin. 

They will be joined by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote and directed Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Lego Movie, as well as being involved with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse as well as producing The Mitchells vs. The Machines, set to arrive on Netflix this Friday. 

Little more is known of the film as of yet, with the teaser clip giving nothing away bar a look at the characters on board a boat, but it is sure to be a unique, tongue in cheek look at the history of the USA. 

America: The Motion Picture arrives on Netflix on June 30.
